When the pandemic first began and the world went into lockdown, there was initial fear due to the uncertainty of the future and how we could adapt to this new normal. However, it wasn’t long before working from home, zoom hang-out’s and home workouts felt normal and became the comfort zone in which we operated from. With the eventual ending of lockdowns, the world was once again forced to break all habits and routines we had adopted, and re-enter the “normal” world, resulting in heightened stress and worry. This may be particularly true for your employees as they return to an office environment. Allow the team at NewPsych psychologists to help explain the psychology of why this is a challenge, as well as strategies and tools to support the transition from hibernation to the new normal.
